The sky is not falling. A win in LA against the Lakers on national TV would really make this a good Friday. TGIF!

Warriors (8-4) @ Lakers (5-7)

TV: ESPN | Radio: KNBR 680

Arena: Staples

Tip-Off: 7:30pm

Blog Buddy: Silver Screen and Roll

Happy Friday! You may have heard the news that the Warriors just can't beat the Memphis Grizzlies. Well, I'm hear to tell you that the sky is not falling. An OT loss minus Stephen Curry is not the end of the world. The Warriors are not a bad team and they don't need a major shakeup.

The Warriors are a really, really good team.

(Apologies to the folks out there who think this is common sense, but Dub Nation has seemed a little down since Wednesday night.)

Moving up and to the right (for my business friends out there), TGIF! Do you remember this?

Let's do it again in LA on national TV.

Tonight's Start 4

I'm happy to say I'm holding it down in the Top 40 with the 39th spot. My fantasy hoops rust is definitely showing. Anyhow, here's my 4 tonight and why:
  1. Andre Iguodala: What's not to like about 47.8% 3pt shooting and 8.2 apg in the last 5 games?
  2. Klay Thompson: There's no better time for a big road game than in LA with his dad watching.
  3. Marreese Speights: There should be plenty of minutes off the bench with Jermaine O'Neal out.
  4. Kent Bazemore: He should get some good playing time in this BLOWOUT!
